Breaking Spears and Mending Hearts : Peacemakers and Restorative Justice in Bougainville
Out of stock
Pat Howley tells the extraordinary story of how, in the 1990s, in the crisis of civil war, the people of the island of Bougainville – the eastern frontier of Papua New Guinea – returned to their traditional peace making and conflict resolution processes as the western court system collapsed.
Prominent is oral evidence from the people who experienced the crisis – the victims, the freedom fighters, and the women who took a leading part in the peace process. Much is through their eyes, in their words.
